What a season it’s been so far. The Voice South Africa has proven that there is so much untapped talent around South Africa and, believe it or not, the finals are next week! After another gruelling episode with many shocking cuts, we are finally down to our Top 8 which will compete in the show’s finale next week where one will be crowned the very first The Voice South Africa winner!
The voting lines for the eight remaining singers – two from each coach – will close as per usual on Thursday night at 22:00. Thereafter, the voting figures will determine who will be representing each of the coaches – Karen Zoid, Bobby van Jaarsveld, Lira and Kahn Morbee – in the last showdown on Sunday, 22 May. The winner will take home R800 000 worth of prizes, including a recording contract with Universal Music South Africa.
The competition is stiffer than ever before as, for the first time, contestants will be up against not only the remaining member in their team, but from the other coaches teams as well.
Here are the voting details for your favourites in the Top 8:
In #TeamBobby voters have to choose between the 22-year old blind singer Vernon Barnard [voting no 06] and 37-year-old Gavin Edwards [voting no 02 ].
In #TeamKaren the vote is between Almur Marais (25) from Stilfontein [voting no 17] or Thembeka Mnguni (32) from Durban [voting no 23].
In #TeamKahn the race is on between students Clemour Ngobeni (24) from Midrand [voting no 09] and Richard Stirton (22) from Cape Town [voting no 16].
In #TeamLira’s Top 2 are: Jeremy Olivier (40) from Cape Town [voting no 27] and Zoë Modiga (22) from Pietermaritzburg [voting no 32].
What’s also exciting is that every single song performed by the contestants this evening is up for you to buy on iTunes and to stream via Apple Music. For true fans of the show, Universal Music South Africa are releasing two The Voice SA albums this week and next week respectively. This week will feature 13 songs from the Top 13, and next week will feature tracks from the talent performing in the finale.
Now, the countdown to the finale begins! Have a favourite? Make sure you vote. You wouldn’t want to see them leaving the show at this stage of the competition.
